Three people were shot at a Charlotte nightclub early Thursday.

The shootings happened about 1:40 a.m. in the patio area inside Candi’s Cabaret in the 3900 block of Statesville Avenue, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said. The shootings followed an argument among several people, police said. One had a gun and started shooting, police said.

One of the victims was shot in the leg, one in the back and one in the side, police told reporters at the scene.

Medic reported later Thursday morning that its paramedics treated two of the victims for life-threatening injuries and took them to Carolinas Medical Center. The other victim had minor injuries, Medic said.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
